    I purchased the dual projector headlights for my 2015 Prius three vin is in images below, the stock bulb input looks too simple to fit in, is there a harness below the one I’m seeing on my current headlights that will fit in that I’m not seeing?

    You need some LED ballast modules, one for each headlight assembly.

    In addition, you're also going to need an adapter harness, most DIY them from commonly available parts.

    That headlight didn’t have the module so I got that coming in, any ideas on getting the ballast cover for that thing?

    I was looking at these dual projectors too from the generation 3 but some other year model they're not in my 2013 but they'll fit so you're saying they take different bulbs and have a ballast and all this kind of stuff no kidding they don't just regular run h11 and 9005 No kidding that makes it totally not worth it I'm certainly not going to make the 750 jump the guy did over on the page your showing I wouldn't mind buying just regular but actually I'm for high beams I don't really need projectors I'm looking to blind everybody when I go to high beams so cut off and courtesy isn't really a thing once you're to your high beams . Oh well another project bites the dust but I'm not up for that kind of cost and retrofitting

    yeah I mean some you find on ebay have the LED Control Module, it isn't a ballast, but I purchased my left and right (only the right was missing a module) for $1000, That's fine for me, because I'm spending $15k on body kit, rims & paint.
    Decide what's worth to you at the end of the day but these headlights look so sick. I can't wait until they're installed and the kit and everything are together.

    Love the clear view of the vin. That’s how people get legit vins and clone it onto another prius

    So this 2015 thing is still a gen 3 You're putting a body kit and doing all that kind of work on a Gen 3 or good on you I wouldn't you know that's that's like so 80s to me I left that arena a long time ago with beams 3SGTE's things like that but yeah it's cool I guess it lives on

    Yeah I mean life is meaningless, I’m being creative because that is meaningful to me, so at the end of the day it is a small way, but it’s definitely not void of meaning.

    I didn't mean it like that but since you're spending all this money and doing the you know Asian look set up or whatever they call all this now initial D type stuff a couple of questions do they make a one-piece nose for any of the Priuses meaning the front fenders and the nose and all in one piece drop it on both it up at a hood that sort of thing with all the boy racer cutouts the NACA duct cut outs etc ???? I saw what I'm guessing is a Gen 4 the other day which looked like my Gen 3 personas back end but when I passed the car the front end is basically a Corolla with the small narrow headlights with one projector in them I'm guessing it might be an H4 high and low beam and the turn signal on whatever very smooth slim lights I know need three projectors one with an H4 and it will be fine it can even be fake and not really shuttered doesn't matter to me when I put on my high beams I'm not looking to be nice with cut off I'm looking to blind somebody that's how rare they're turned on

    oh like sort of an rx-7 front end clip type body kit? The way that it’s all one piece, not an rx-7 look alike I’m not sure, the company I went with makes a 6 piece kit. The front bumper and quarter panels are separate, but I’m thinking if you found a company that does molding, they may charge the design fee but it sounds like it’s doable honestly. Hmm I mean yeah that sounds like a really custom job, I’d assume they had a really specific idea in mind when designing the front end if it looked like the persona in the rear and then a Corolla up front. But those headlights sound dope. I’ve heard rumors on this site that there are some new lights coming out for the 3rd gens that are like you said skinny with, and maybe it’s different from your description, but has the multiple lens type thing one after another from left to right. Yeah and as far as hid goes I get that, I don’t hardly use my high beams as it is either.
